A great tasting, low fat meal that can easily be turned into a side by subtracting the chicken!

Incredible! 5.0/5
(3 ratings)

A somewhat healthier take on this Costa Rican jack-of-all trades dish. I've substituted brown rice for the traditional white rice.

This versatile dish can be matched with eggs, queso blanco, and tortillas for a heartly breakfast. It can also serve as the base for lunches or dinners. In fact, I often eat it alone with a berry smoothie as a post run recover meal because of it's healthy balance of carbs and protein.

This rice is a healthier substitute for the typical high fat, high calorie fried rice we all know and used to love!

Rachel's Primal Sweet Potato Fries or Chips
Very Good 4.6/5
(13 ratings)

Here's my recipe for primal chips or fries (depending on how you slice them.) This is based off of a recipe from 150 Things to Make with Roast Chicken by Tony Rosenfeld.

If you're not "Primal to the core" you could add 1 teaspoon brown sugar to this mix.
